This is the main hospital in downtown Vancouver and I was born here (in the now defunct maternaty ward). At the end of November each year, they put up the Lights of Hope — a holiday light display errected on the exterior of this gorgeous heritage building.


“Lights of Hope — Vancouver’s landmark holiday display is a welcome show of light in the winter.
